Hemlock Lake is one of the minor Finger Lakes. It is mostly located in Livingston County, New York, south of Rochester, with a portion overlapping into Ontario County. Hemlock Lake is seven miles (12 km) long, and approximately a half-mile wide along most of its uniform north-south length. It has a surface area of 1,800 acres (7 km2), and maximum and mean depths of 91 feet (28 m) and 45 feet (14 m) respectively. Because the lake is a water source to Rochester, shore development is restricted and size limits pertain to boats and outboard motors. A feature of the lake is its land-locked salmon. In addition, the lake does offer an excellent fishery for rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, rock bass, yellow perch, and white crappie. The scenic, undisturbed surroundings make it an ideal location for a quiet and peaceful outing.
